Singapore’s Vegetarian Cuisine

I’m a vegetarian. In Singapore’s food court there were so many stalls that sold vegetarian cuisine, so it wasn’t hard for me to find some delicacy there

Vegetarian Tom Yum

This Tom Yum was incredibly tasty with super big bowl servings. This was Singapore’s yellow noodles with some tofu, various vegetarian meat (shrimp, fish,etc), and vegetables. It only cost S$ 5. Located at Jurong East Food Court.

Vegetarian Chicken Rice

This chicken rice was yellow rice with duck and vegetarian chicken, completed with celery and slices of cucumber. The price was S$ 2.4 with the same stall as the vegetarian Tom Yum at Jurong East. I am so sorry with the photos, since I had it for take-a-way service, the celery was already wilted and the look was no more mouthwatering anymore. But believe me, this chicken rice was really tasty :9


Singapore's Vegetarian Porridge

Does it look really oily? I guess so. The uncle (chef) gave too much oil on this porridge. This porridge, is not the same like our porridge in Indonesia. The porridge there was much like a bowl of rice and poured with soup (they have vegetables, vegetarian chicken, and some mushrooms). The taste was not really good but fair enough.


Salted Fish Fried Rice

Like any other fried rice, this fried rice taste like the standard, only added with much of bean sprouts, vegetarian fried fish (and not salty), and corn. The price was S$ 4 at Jurong East Food Court.

Food Stall at Bugis

Then, I went to Bugis and found this food stall.

Singapore's Rojak

Rujak in Indonesia means that sliced mixed fruit eaten with spicy sauces. Fruit rojak in Singapore consists typically of cucumber, pineapple, benkoang (jicama), bean sprouts, taupok (puffy, deep-fried tofu) and youtiao (cut-up Chinese-style fritters).

The dressing is made up of water, belacan (shrimp paste), sugar, chili, and lime juice. The ingredients are cut into bite-sized portions and tossed in a bowl with the dressing and topped with chopped peanuts and a dash of ground or finely chopped bunga kantan (pink ginger bud). The price was S$ 3.

Singapore's Lumpia

Singapore's Lumpia Filling

The filling were bangkoang, celery, and minced nuts. Tasty. Only S$ 2 (if i’m not mistaken) 😛

Rojak and Lumpia

The lumpia was pretty big though. I ate one and I felt full already.

Malaysian Kue Tiau

This kuetiau was sold in Bugis, the same food stall with lumpia and rojak. Malaysian Kuetiau here was plain fried kuetiau with sweet soy sauce. The different with Indonesian kuetiau were, Malaysian kuetiau was flatter and wider. The taste was in between noodles and kuetiau. The price was S$ 1 only.

Pumpkin Pie and curry puff

This is fried pumpkin cake, the one that we usually meet in Chi Cong Fan friends. The size was square and it was cut to four. Next to pumpkin cake, is curry puffs. Yet, both of them were delicious.

That was my cuisine trip at Singapore, since I am a vegetarian, I can only try all of these food. But these food are not only sold for Vegan only, non-vegan people can also taste this. The Rojak and Tom Yum, you really should try it.
